This week's Threadhead is one of the coolest we have. Shani is the epitome of rad skate girl and she's legit. She just skated in the Vans Park Series and we're STOKED for her. Read on to get her take on the female skate world and advice for getting into it!
Who are you and what's your thing?
My name is Shani Bru, I'm 21 years old and I'm into skateboarding.
What made you start skating?
I was chilling a lot at the skatepark with the guys, so then I wanted to show them that I could also do it! It was way more fun to skate than to only watch them!
When did you realize professional skating was a legitimate path for you?
I don't really know...when I discovered skateboarding, I knew it was going to be my passion for life, so I always knew I wanted to do this professionally!
Any advice to girls wanting to enter the skating world?
YES! Girls, please don't give a f*ck about anything that someone says about who you are, and what you want to do. You wanna skate? Just do it and don't give up.
Worst crash? How'd you get back on the board?
A few years ago I fell on the big vert ramp, broke a bone in my wrist, but just got back on my board the next day! ahahaha
Coolest part of touring with the Vans Park Series?
The coolest part is to be with my friends from everywhere in the world, discovering the world and for sure skating the best skateparks ever!!
Anything else you want to add?Thanks for the support!!
